so i have a 1967 caprice with drum brakes, i had a wheel bearing go out and it messed up the threads on my spindles,what other years can i use for a spindle? or do i have to use just a 67 spindle? please help
1965-70 should bolt in for drum brakes, but not with disc brakes. They may even be interchangeable up through latter years (a quick trip to a suspenssion vendor's site such as Global West or Hotchkiss will tell you which years you can buy a lowered spindle for. If the lowered spindle will fit then the regular production splindle will also interchange in those years cars.
Yes the 1965 through 1970 where the same car with trim changes made to disguise the car. 1971-76 was another production run as was the 1958-'64 that proceaded it. Though there were a lot more sheet metal changes in the early years than in latter production runs with maybe two cars sharing the same shape from 1958-'64).
thanks nobody has been able to give me a straight answer on this around where im at,and it has been kidnfo hard to find 67 spindles but there is a set of 70 spindles on ebay for $50 a piece so i needed to know if they would work,now i can get my car back on the road
Are you guys sure that 65-68 and 69-70 drum spindles are the same? If that's true, why all the disk conversion kits cannot be mounted on 69-70 spindles? I thought that 65-68 spindles are the same but that there is something different with 69-70 ones.
